The world of drugs took over the life of ex-model and dancer with Dominican and Puerto Rican roots, Suzy Pérez. After having a successful career in the entertainment world, vice took over her.
One of the good things this world left him was the birth of his son Jehew, a 19-year-old boy who was separated from his mother when he was 7, whom he did not see long ago.
Jehew traveled from North Carolina to see her mother on Tuesday. The reunion between mother and son shocked the entire community of Upper Manhattan in New York and the entire world that saw him through social networks.
The program The Fat and the Skinny had, exclusively, had access to the young man and they managed to take him to hug Suzy once again.
But the reunion generated a reaction opposite to what was expected. Pérez was more upset than he was and ended up in the hospital. We spoke with Gelena Solano, the reporter who has followed up on this story, who says that, to achieve the first step of entering a detoxification and rehabilitation process, Pérez has to want help.
The periodic consumption of drugs transforms the brain and controls parts of it that allow us to exercise self-control and for its recovery, there is still a long way to go.
"The important thing is to help her get out of vice and enter a rehabilitation center," she told People En Español. "We want to bathe her and take her to a spa, to encourage her to get off drugs."
To help with the costs of Suzy's rehab, a help account on GoFundMe has been created by Suzy's family.
